The Golden Age of Blues - was there one?

I am assuming that is directed towards me. I'm saying it right here. A lot of todays Blues
performers are in Blues-L, they just lurk.

 I see a lot of copy cats and mediocre players. Not all are like that of course, but there are plenty
compared to the originators. And the current state of song writing is dismale. Same old shit and
the stuff that passes for "originality" is crap. There, I said it. Sue me.

And even though you think this is an absurd thread Ricky, you sure are posting a lot.

And if the Golden Age is passed, I want to know who will be first in line to tell the current crop of
blues professionals they're all a bunch of BS posers who need to just stay home.
